  18. 18. THE POWER OF P.I.E: Performance  Performance is a direct reflection of you.  Bragging and complaining are not the marks of winners.  Take compliments and praise with grace.  Seek to improve the performance of others and the organization. Their success will wear on you.  Performance of task and people interaction affect your performance.  How you deliver is as important as what you deliver.  Welcome performance reviews as a chance to improve.  Share information and help others.

It’s an investment in your career.  Just because someone doesn’t have a position of power, don’t assume exposure is not critical. That individual may have the ear of a person in power.
